  • A fascinating journey

    By FBI Rich
    I found this book to be absolutely riveting. I am a voracious reader of World War II history and this book satisfied me in a very unique way. Assembled in a single volume was a wonderful account of the four 5 star admirals in World War II revealing heretofore unknown facts to me. Their interaction with each other was fascinating. Especially Admiral Leahy's close relationship with FDR. I highly recommend this as a great read!

  • A view from the top

    I thought his book was excellent. It uses the rank of Fleet Admiral as the starting point. We go back from childhood through flashes of their careers, centering on significant moments in World, service, or National events. How their paths crossed, and the influence they had upon others and how people and places had influenced them. Without realizing it, we become intimate and tied to the lives and careers of these men. So as events affect them, we also feel emotionally invested. It is a very good book, and views our country's history in the majority of the 20th Century through the perspective of these 4 Admirals. Well done, and a great companion book for any studies of the Navy, of WWII, of leadership, of politics, of ethics, of government, and of courage. I highly recommend this book.
